Everything needed for a deep, thoughtful interview -- from themed questions to recording tips to an audience -- is available and easy to use in this impressive tool. The questions are thoughtful and discussion-provoking, and the StoryCorps interface is super-easy to use, allowing for a polished yet casual conversation. The feed displays featured stories, which are impressively inspirational. Users can also follow friends and family and share stories with them more privately. The technology is amazing, and the stories are priceless.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
